Need an easy recipe for fudge for the holiday give-aways? Here it is! You may even have everything you need in the pantry.
12-oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 14-oz can of sweetened condensed milk
dash of salt
1/2-cup of peanut butter (optional)
- Heat everything in a heavy pan over low heat and stir A LOT so it doesn't stick.
- Once it's smooth, remove from heat and pour into a 9 inch square pan lined with foil.
- Let it set for a few hours in the refrigerator and cut in bite size cubes. You can get 64 perfect bite size pieces if you make 8 cuts across both ways.
This is a base recipe. Add about 1/2 cup or more of peanut butter (creamy or crunchy) or walnuts if you like nuts in your fudge. You could also add some white chocolate towards the end to give it a "marbled" look.
